"to whom he or she must report to"

  • Thread starter bobert16
  • Start date Jun 12, 2008
  • Jun 12, 2008

Hello! I have a grammatical question concerning the following sentence: The Legal Manager is appointed by the CCO, to whom he or she must report to. Is the presence of the second "to" at the very end of the sentence gramatically correct? Or would it be better to simply say "... to whom he or she must report." I also realise that the entire sentence structure sounds a bit awkward... Thanks for your help!  


Senior Member

Hi, There is no place for this second 'to' in the sentence. It should not be there, as its function has already been fulfilled by the 'to' immediately following the comma.
